I confess that when people tell others that they should just quit their job because it’s making them unhappy, it bothers me. It’s not always so easy. Some people have employment barriers like disabilities or age that make finding a job at all much harder than it is for others. Financial realities mean that having a job is a necessity for the majority of people, so maybe instead of saying “just quit!”, they should just listen and try to be supportive. Sometimes people just need to vent and they’re not asking for advice.
I'm considering hiring a male sex worker not for the purposes of sex, but to accompany me to family weddings and/or funerals.
is social poverty, extreme isolation. If you have even just one or two good friends, you're doing well. Don't take them for granted.
What's the most beautiful, surreal, meaningful, precognitive, emotionally charged or mind-blowing dream you've ever had in your entire life, that you can remember?
I'm genuinely curious, and would love to hear yours in the comments. You can even write more than one, if you feel like it.
I've had a number of really interesting dreams over the years -- some downright precognitive (the dream will happen first, and then an uncannily similar or overlapping physical event will follow later that can't really be explained by 'randomness' or coincidence).
A number of years ago I noticed that I tend to forget most of my dreams relatively quickly, so I started writing down all of the dreams I find meaningful enough in a dream journal. It's really helped with recalling them a lot. I really recommend keeping a dream journal and writing down any significant dreams upon waking, as for most they do tend to slip away really fast, as well as seem to have waking life parallels that are important, beneficial, and hard to ignore, if we can decipher and understand them correctly. :)
PS - Please come back, super interesting confessions posters from years ago!
That I am very, very lonely
It would be a challenge for any of my "loved ones" to find a current photo of me for a news article / missing poster. "Well, yeah we are friends / related I guess but we don't actually, you know, do anything together." I guess my drivers license photo would have to do.
It's much healthier to have fresh organic produce. Our health would be much better if we all ate organic. I am now raising chickens in Vancouver to eat them. Fresh fried organic chicken tastes amazing and you're not putting all of those chemicals in your body. Anyone with a garden in Vancouver should try it.
The wildfires on Maui have pushed me to make a critical decision: I am resigning from my well paying job on Monday. Life is short, beauty is short, I can’t stall my life any longer. My well paying, shitty job is a complete waste of my time. I will die one day. I could die soon. Why torture myself another day with a dismissive, cold, exploitative boss and workplace? Hawaii is my favourite place in the whole world. To see it turn to ash in one day is a massive wake up call to me, to pursue what I really want and not waste my life on people who are in my way of enlightenment.
You can love someone but still leave them. It’s nice to think that love solves everything, but that’s only true if both people are mature enough for the reality of an adult relationship. There’s a part of me that will always love them, but I finally learned to love myself enough to realize that I deserve more than crumbs.
I can't comprehend the pain and discomfort I must have caused you by being so self-absorbed. I understand and accept that forgiveness will never be on the table. I will do my best to ensure you are not haunted by memories my presence may induce. I have long admired your strength and realize I need to take a page from that book. I am truly sorry that what I did hurt you so much that it severed the friendship we had. I wish you well.
